I just went to the vending machine at work and this is what I found.

Burger King: Ketchup & Fries Flavored Potato Snacks.

They sort of taste like ketchup....more of a vinegar flavor really. Not too bad....just thought they were kind of weird.

I guess they also are coming out with a Flame Broiled Burger flavor chip as well.

Holy Crap!! I was just noticing this new item in our vending machine the other day. I wasn't adventurous enough to waste 75 cents to buy this. Think I'll still save my money.

I not sure if that's Japanese or not but they'll put almost anything in a vending machine. I've gotten hot (well, very warm) sake out of machine when my ship visited when I was in the Navy.

I have a friend who did try it, sober and not on a dare. He claimed it had a built in pickle taste, which IMO may or may not have been intentional.

I used to work for a vending company and those things sold like hotcakes. I never tried one personally, but my customers always bitched if I didnt keep plenty in their machines.

Would have to agree with Pikesome about the Japanese and vending machines. You can get just about anything you want out of a machine over there.

I remember coming out of a restaurant in Tokyo and looking at a vending machine on the corner offering a very large selection of porn flicks, magazines and adult toys. :evil:

How about a Hot Dog/Sausage vending machine?

It's gotta be superior to the "Sand Sausage" the cat leaves for Toot.

Here's a link to some others. Machines selling 10 Kilo rice sacks, Eggs, Beer/Alcohol, etc.

Heh. I don't consider these "food products", but I suspect there are some salary man types that do.

Damn funny looking cigarettes, if you ask me.

I can't see how anyone thought those were a good idea.

I mean anyone who isn't actually high at the moment.

Was the video game the highly disturbing "Boonga-Boonga"?

There's something very wrong about a videogame that scores based off spanking and penetration...JMO.

There's no word on a 360 or PS3 port. For those interested in playing, I suspect GOATSE may have one of the actual arcade games.
